Eggplant has never been easier or healthier to cook than by steaming until itís soft, tender and almost creamy in texture and taste. This method of cooking allows the natural flavours to really shine through however steaming is often overlooked with preference giving way to roasting, baking or frying.
Steaming is such an underused technique in Western style cuisine, especially when it comes to this versatile ingredient; itís a much quicker way of cooking, nutrients are preserved and itís extremely low in fat. Eggplant is naturally porous and will readily soak up the smorgasbord of flavours you combine with it.
Simply toss the steamed eggplant with some herbs and spices; or a sauce that is low in fat and salt and create the perfect side dish that boasts big flavours.
Steamed Eggplant is tossed with a little Tamari, Coconut Oil, Rice Malt Syrup, Tahini, Rice Vinegar and Chilli Oil to create a light, flavoursome side dish.
